I would like to throw out the name ALF, from the old TV show. I hope this does not offend the kittens, he was always trying to catch the family cat but never caught him. (If I remember cats were a delicusy on his home planet). Anyway isn't that what we are looking/listening for Alien Life Form(s).

Well if Seti wants SciFi female names, Here's some that should ring a bell or two:

1. B'tor(Infamous Female Klingon Character on Star Trek)
2. Lursa(Infamous Female Klingon Character on Star Trek)
3. Majel(Roddenberry)
4. Nichelle(Nichols)

J. Mileski: Anise was HOT... not quite a feature we want in a server occupying a broom closet with finicky AC.

<sigh> What a bunch of yung'uns. You make me feel so old.

The new server will be big, powerful, designed to operate without human intervention, and kick a$$.

I vote for Ellie--lead character in Contact because it's some weird cosmic destiny that enough money was raised for this server. :)

GORT


I always viewed Gort as a threat, the power to destroy the world, barely contained. Klaatu would be the best character from that movie to suggest as a server name, I think....

Klaatu was Michael Rennie's character's name. Perhaps you should review the movie again. He was the voice of reason and concern. I vote Klaatu.
